I heard from my colleague that there is this particular stall at Pantai Dalam commuter station called ‘Warung Rindu’. Rindu is a Malay word for ‘yearning or longing’ and since Warung Rindu is famous for their nasi lemak, customers will apparently yearn for the nasi lemak when they can’t have it.
Since it sounded quite appealing to me, I decided to bring my iPhone to locate the stall using its Google Map function. After a handful of wrong turnings and Internet browsing while on the road, I managed to find the stall at Jalan Bukit Angkasa which is a stone throw away from the commuter station.
Sure enough, the stall does look pretty interesting with rows of nasi lemak bungkus lining up at the front counter. The chicken were also being fried when I ordered my plate of nasi lemak. Having heard so many good things about it, I was waiting in anticipation to taste it.
The dish (RM 4.50) came with a drumstick, fried egg and sambal.
Firstly, the chicken wasn’t really that great. After hearing so much about Warung Rindu, I was surprise to find out that their chicken was only average at best.
It didn’t have enough ‘rempah’ taste as I would expect from a stall like this.
The sambal wasn’t spicy at all. As a matter of fact, there was a tinge of sweetness in it which is not a bad thing. But I find it lacking of the ‘kick’ that I would prefer in a good dollop of sambal. Overall, I wasn’t impress with the meal at all.
The satay stall which is located next to Warung Rindu fared much better.
The chicken meat (RM 0.50 per stick) was sweet and tasted quite alright. Some prefer the skewered meat to have a bit more fats in them but I prefer mine without it.
And at such, the satay suits my preference.
The kuah satay unfortunately was only average. If they had added more crunch peanut in it, I am sure it would have tasted better.
After asking my colleague again, I was told that the original Warung Rindu is located at the turning off the main road of Pantai Dalam commuter station. Sigh…!
